Claire's Holdings, a global fashion brand known for its curation of jewelry and accessories, has appointed IMG as its first exclusive licensing partner. IMG will deliver Claire’s branded products in new categories building upon existing touchpoints among Claire’s customers, while further expanding its distribution footprint and geographic coverage.  

Under the multiyear agreement, IMG will bring to market complementary products that support Claire’s brand purpose to inspire self-expression and individuality.
